A Big Civil War Quilt and A Little Civil War Quilt!

The Strippy Civil War quilt is finished and ready to be quilted--I'm so happy to have the top finished. Now it will wait in line with the others to be quilted!!! It is bigger than I envisioned it and yes, as you probably noticed, it is being held upside down in the picture, but I didn't want to bother my quilt holder to stand on the chair and hold it again!!!!

Also finished is a mini (16"x21") Civil War fabric quilt. The second picture shows the front top and the third picture shows the pieced back done with the left-over fabrics. This one was fun to do, even if those were little, tiny squares!

Everyone have their Christmas shopping done and presents all made? I'm still waiting for a few things to be delivered from Amazon, but I think they are going to make it on time---sitting here on pins and needles!!! Shouldn't have let the time slip away from me like it did!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
